Mary Lucus

Director of Institutional Research

Every institution must first know itself. As director of institutional research it is my role to paint an accurate picture of Belmont -- our students, our faculty, our staff, and our history. As we come to understand who we are, we make better decisions about where we are going and we have more power to have a say in our future.

Data is an important asset of the university and ensuring the quality and accuracy of our data requires a comprehensive and collaborative approach.  As the Director of Business Intelligence and Data Management I work with a variety of university offices on data governance, documentation and training to ensure that that the university has the best possible data available for decision-making and daily business processes.

Senior Systems Coordinator

As Senior Systems Coordinator, I use my knowledge of Banner and operational procedures to support and improve data collection, input and maintenance. This serves to maximize its usefulness in planning and decision-making. I enjoy the challenge of finding new ways to use technology to improve processes and maintain data. Our department is an exciting place to work!

Carol Smith Walter

Assessment Coordinator

How do we know we are accomplishing what we set out to accomplish as an educational institution? Through assessment. Each of our educational programs has identified its goals and established measurements for whether it is accomplishing these goals. I coordinate that effort, including how the data are stored and reported.
